School starts on Monday, for teachers at least. I think the children come the following Monday. It's hard to believe that it's a month since I arrived back in Phnom Penh, but it is. It's been a good month with time to go to the gym, and catch up with friends, and get my "house" in order ready for the start of the school year. I now have just two days before I start my new routines. I'm excited! Meanwhile I'm going to enjoy those last two days.
This evening I had two friends over for pizza and a movie. They are both teachers at Logos, and so it's the end of week two for them, and when they arrived they were definitely ready for a low key evening. It was fun catching up, and hearing some of the challenges they are facing this year. Watching "Love Comes Softly" was great too! Disappointing that it deviates from the original book to some extent, but enjoyable anyway. Some beautiful scenery! God's creation is just amazing, and He lets us enjoy it! In fact He wants us to enjoy it and take care of it.
Tomorrow I have a busy day planned. Gym in the morning, lunch with another friend from Logos (to celebrate her academic success in her pre-masters course), then a newsletter to write, maybe a blog and and a phone call or two, and then maybe another movie night (with a different friend). Hmm sounds like a fun day to me. We'll see what actually happens!
Sunday I plan to go to the gym, then maybe out for lunch, then maybe home for a "nanna nap", then off to the afternoon service at the ICF. Sounds like a good Sunday to me. Hopefully I'll get an early night as I've got an early start planned for Monday. Don't have to be at school until 9am, but need to get into an early start routine, so I'm thinking that a workout before school might just work. We will see.
Meanwhile, I'm praising God for all He has taught me over the last couple of months. He has been faithful in so many ways, and I know that He will continue to be faithful. Where better to be, than in the place He has called me to, doing the work He has called me to do! Thanks Lord.
